heres my stuff....everything u see have here is homemade(except the saw).

FYI the saw is made by nils and is a P.O.S. had it now 3 years (havent used it this year) cut maybe 12 holes and can no longer use it because the 3 of the teeth are messed up. 2 broke, 1 bent really bad.

hey Pooh - what's the wood framed thing with the hardware screen in it? I'm new to spearing this year and trying to pick up some tricks of the trade so to speak.

And 2 I left at home. Plus my jigging stick. Anyone want to trade for the Bear Creek on the right? I'd like to get a 6" Bear CreeK pike.

An old landing net works great for clearing ice chunks from the the hole however it takes some abuse and may need to be renetted from time to time. I use scuba netting from fabric store.

Here is my set up from this morning. The spear and decoys are homemade, except the bear creek, and the house is a Shappel Icehouse 5000. The fish are 20 and 25 inches. The two decoys in the center worked best today, the red/white and yellow/black.

Nice pic. Lots of cool decoys.

How do the fish like the frog decoys?

I almost bought one last wknd. Got a mini sunfish type decoy instead. It really zings through the water, but I wonder if it's big enough to attract fish.

I have a fair amount come in to the frogs. Last weekend I speared two small ones less than five minutes apart on the frog with black spots.

hey Shamalex - I like your spear deign and am thinking of making one for next year myself. Are the tines 1/4 inch and the shaft 1/2 inch? Is the piece bridging the shaft and the tines all one piece or did you cut them out separately and weld them together?

thanks!

Yes, the tines are 1/4" and the shaft is 1/2". I used two pieces and welded them together, like a sandwich. If you want I can put a close-up picture here.

Thanks for the close-up Sham, I've been thinking of making something along those lines but with square corner tines. I like the angled ones you have better tho. Very nice, very nice!

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
